Secretary of State Hillary Clinton officially launched the initiative in May 2010 in Beijing. The Chinese government strongly supports the initiative and has already committed 10,000 “Bridge Scholarships” for American students to study in China. The 100,000 Strong Initiative has transitioned into an independent, non-profit organization external to the State Department. Updates on the Initiative’s programs can be found at http://100kstrong.org/.
